About The Work

From the tip of its ear to its toes, the figure is glossed with a pattern that mirrors the large 25-image print of Warhol’s iconic piece. The late pop artist used a unique silk-screening method to create the original painting, where each image was painted with subtle differences. This particular BE@RBRICK embodies various sections of the work, rendered in a rich sky-blue palette. In contrast to the original painting, this pattern is placed over a sculptural toy, offering an interesting dimension and perspective on the famed motif. Warhol created the piece in the month of August in ‘62, just a few weeks after Monroe’s passing; the portrait is based on a single photograph from the 1953 film Niagara. (Source)
